The Cohort Philosophy

The core subject grouping offers an environment and a peer group where interest in learning and facing intellectual challenges is seen as the norm and not as something unusual or undesirable. This constructive peer atmosphere is a tremendous advantage to the academically gifted student. On the other hand, the elective program provides the advantages of mixing challenge students with the rest of the student body and ensuring that they are well integrated into the school’s broader culture.
